While math is certainly not my strong suit, I do love to celebrate Pi Day. After all, pie is the superior dessert, in my opinion. While I know it's a play on the number that frustrated geometry students the world over are plugging into formulas to find circumferences, for me, it's another reason to break out the butter, flour, and sugar. Although, let's be honest, there are some great savory pies as well. On this upcoming Pi Day, there's no better way to celebrate than with family. That's why I've compiled 10 kid-friendly pie recipes for Pi Day that won't stay around for long.
There are more than 3.14 reasons to love Pi Day, and all of them have to do with flaky crust and rich filling. True story, during my eighth grade year, my math teacher — a stern fellow with zero sense of humor and even less sense of style — challenged me to memorize as many numbers of pi as I could. He even offered extra credit. For every 10 numbers I memorized, I'd get one point of credit. Now, he was doing this because he truly didn't think I would memorize any numbers. I have dyscalculia and ADHD, and therefore was a distracted, poor math student until I learned to cope. Joke's on him — I memorized hundreds of numbers, in perfect sequence. I took my grade from a solid C- to an A-. So my pie on Pi Day is forever dedicated to Mr. M. And these kid-friendly Pi Day recipes are going to make me and my family very happy indeed.
